I read that you can make one out of yok and tamiya parts. And has anyone run the car on carpet? It seems very track proven on asphalt.
So far I've only used the one-ways on carpet, but with white springs on the front and blue on the rear, it was pretty much dialled.
For low grip, I've recently been running it with a Speedtech spool, and it has been awesome. (i have used kit springs all rounf, with a red rear roll bar.), haven't really found a need to run a diff yet, even though I do have an yokomo I could butcher to make one.
should note that this is with the lwt suspension kit though.
Oh and by the way, I've pretty much eliminated all the slop in my steering now. I did three things.
1) new servo saver, fitted a kimborough med size one, much tighter on the servo.
2) I put some drops of ca in the ball joints. worked wonders, but i made a bit of a mistake by not letting it dry for long enough on one of them...
3) I place three wheel axle spacers (0.1mm for a total of 0.3mm) on each of the steering posts. I placed one underneath the bellcrank (above the single BD6 spacer) , and two above (below the two BD6 spacers). This was pretty much the final solution, completely removed any of the remainng slop.
